Stressed? Worried about academic work? Not sleeping well? Feeling overwhelmed?
The aim of this six week course is to teach you new skills that can fight stress and its effects. It uses proven, evidenced techniques based on an approach called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Session 1: Learn about stress
Session 2: Control your body: relaxation, exercise
Session 3: Control your thoughts: think your way out of stress
Session 4: Solving your problems and facing your fear
Session 5: Control panic
Session 6: Control sleep problems; controlling your future
The sessions are run like seminars, with a presenter giving you information to help understand you stress and anxiety and ways of managing and overcoming these. You will not have to talk or speak about yourself; you can just sit and listen and learn some great ways of dealing with stress. Each session will be supported by a useful handout.
The course is delivered by Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), a service run by the NHS.
